Coronation Street's original Bethany Platt actresses now

They're unrecognisable

Lucy Fallon is one of Corrie's most popular stars, but way before she joined the cobbles, Bethany Platt was played by TWO other actresses.

Twins Emily and Amy Walton portrayed young Bethany between 2000 and 2007.

When Bethany returned, Lucy Fallon took over the role.

The teen has since been involved in a bullying storyline, a child grooming plot and a romance with Craig.
